. teddy kennedy had that. clinton has that. i think that in time, the president of the united states, barack obama, is acquiring it as well. there was at the end of his speech where he began to warm, to warm to it. there was a kind of passion that built and i thought that's the direction he has to go. that will be his authenticity. >> i agree with you. there was a lot of talk of it being a workmanlike speech but it ended with a huge lift. we will talk more about the performances on display at the dnc last week on "now." james lipton gave us his assessment of governor romney's big speech at the rnc. >> i would say that he has certainly improved, without question. he was more confident. he was more assertive. he was more relaxed. and let us now ask why. he was preaching to the converted. he was, as we say, preaching to the choir. >> will any of the convention performances inform campaign dynamics and the race towards november? we will have more with james lipton, next. this country was built by working people. the economy needs manufacturing. machines, tools, people making stuff. compa
